Re: 'Fisherman Catches a Monster - 671 lb Bluefin Tuna'

671 pounds is more size/weight of a perkins 4-108. ask me how i know this fact.... first hand, even......i would rather use a smaller lure and catch a smaller fish so i can use it for food on my way...lol...
671 pounds is waaay too big to either bring onto boat or use in an efficient and effective manner.
the fish is only worth money IFF you have a good fisherboat nearby to buy to from ye. not often happen. and IFF the fish was prepared and kept properly when caught. most folks dont know how to do that. most yots cannot accommodate for this
is a good dream for the catcher of the fish, but reality dictates it aint happening. dream on --many reasons this selling of fish by yotties aint happening.

I have a friend who is an avid bluewater angler... He's got a picture in his office of a boated fish called "Sushi Anyone?"

A yellow that was chomped straight through in one bite right at the gill plate... JUST the head weighed in at 185 lb...
